The mission of Safe Harbor Family Crisis Center is to support and respond to the needs of survivors of domestic violence and their dependents in the effort to avoid further abuse.
While you may not have control over another person’s violent behavior, you do have choices about how to respond.
Always remember, it is against the law for your partner to abuse you. Domestic violence is not a family matter- it is a serious crime. You have the right and power to break free from the violence. You can, and deserve to have a better, safer life for you and your children.
